AUSTIN -- For the week ending Jan. 18, Texas feeder cattle auctions reported prices mostly steady to $6 higher per hundredweight (cwt). However, a few locations also noted prices $4 lower on a portion of their offerings, and some were as much as $15 higher. Texas direct feeder cattle prices were mostly steady. Market fundamentals remain bullish as tight supplies, record high fed cattle prices and grain prices much lower than they were at this time last year continue to support feeder prices. Fed cattle cash prices set another record-high last week, averaging $141.93 per cwt, up $3 from the previous week. Wholesale beef values also established new record-highs, with Choice-grade offerings passing $230 per cwt for the first time. Weekly beef export sales totaled 15,800 metric tons, nearly three times higher than the previous week. South Korea, Hong Kong, and Mexico were the leading buyers. . . .
